Shutters are a must have in any home or workplace for a variety of different reasons. From controlling the amount of sunlight in a room to ensuring the safety of you and your loved ones, shutters provide many great benefits. However, there is one unique trait which is often overlooked; the ability of shutters to insulate a home.

Heat Loss Leads to a Chilly Abode
Shutters as Insulation
Insulating Benefits of Guardians Aluminium Blades?
Guardian’s Shutters use a special aluminium aerofoil blade, which means that underneath the nice powder coated finish there is 2 air pockets. These air pockets help a great deal in regards to insulation; in fact it works well in both summer and winter. As the inside or outside changes temperature the air pockets never heat up or cool down enough to transfer through.A great way to keep your energy bill down is by opening your shutters during the day and letting the winter sun pour through, as soon as the temperature and sun drops, close the shutters & blades and your house will now retain the heat.
Alternatively in summer use the shutter blades to block the sun out during the day & retain the cool air-conditioned environment from escaping through your glass windows.
